That’s the reason why fashion gurus suggest you buy quality products like the ones showcased on this website, because you need not replace them every year. Back to the focus of this article, here are the differences you need to know to help you decide whether to buy a bridle or saddle leather product.
Items made from saddle leather, due to its softness, will develop an individual patina much quicker than bridle leather. That said, bridle leather will still develop an individual patina over time, with it attaining a unique aesthetic as you use products crafted from the material.
All hides are supplied in uncut condition and priced per square foot or by the side for saddlery skirting, English bridle, and harness leathers. Quantity discounts are offered for a minimum of 3 side bundles of mix and match weights.
This particular full-grain veg-tan leather will have the characteristics of minimal stretch, firmness, durability, and the ability to hold tool design, carving, case forming, dying, and stamping. World renowned master saddle maker, Chuck Stories uses Hermann Oak Leather to create one-of-a-kind masterpieces like the one shown above.
Our English bridle leather is recolored into a natural transparent deep finish along with a pasted flesh side. This feature eliminates the need for lining the backside for belts and straps that can be then edged for a stand-alone single-ply leather.
Our saddlery show room showcases and inventories all the leathers described on this page. It is produced in either dry pigmented or natural oil tan finish and is ideal for saddlebags, and general horse gear except any strap goods as chrome tanned leather is subject to more stretch.
Veg-tanned Latino is a firm Latino using only tree bark tanning to produce strong, colored leather for cases, scabbards, saddlebags, and saddles were no tooling or case forming is required. This leather is refinished and can also be used for strap work where minimal stretch and tying is required.
Sides average 20-25 soft and are available in a deep burgundy or black in 8 to 10 oz weight. Veg-tan re-tan Latino leather is initially tanned in chrome for flexibility and then “Re tanned” in Veg/Bark for a denser, firmer grain which results in a flexible, firm, limited stretching Latino.
The hides are then hot stuffed with tallow and wax to add moisture resistance for outdoor applications as in saddle Latino’s, reins, saddlebags, lace leathers, and saddle strings. Also called “Indian Tan Latino”, the tanning process condenses the hide fiber and is recommended where an extremely tough and durable leather is required for strap applications.
Ideal for boot laces, saddle strings, and heavy-duty strap Latino. This veg tanned harness leather is available in either natural “Russet” (Medium brown due to wax finish) or “Black”.
Great for holsters, journals, purses, wallets, saddlebags, cases, chap tops, hobby craft, and other smaller leather crater projects. Lately there has been some discussion about Brooks saddles in the comments sections of the posts.
Which one of them you will prefer depends on your preference for sprung vs unstrung saddles, and whether your bicycle has a modern or an old-style seat post (for example, the B66 and B67 are identical, except the latter is designed to fit modern seat posts). These are extra heavy-duty saddles and can take even the weightiest of riders on long upright trips.
If you are female, love Edwardian design, and have a bicycle with very relaxed geometry, there is also the B18 “Lady”. This is a very wide and short saddle, designed to be ridden by women wearing skirts and sitting completely upright on a bicycle with an extremely slack seat tube.
Many do not want to hear that, because those racing saddles often have the coolest aesthetics and come in all sorts of crazy colors and special editions. The cycling style of a serious road cyclist is so aggressive, that their butt really only floats on the surface of the saddle, rather than actually sits upon it.
Sprung saddles provide suspension, the benefit of which is that you feel more comfortable going over bumps on the road. For an upright bicycle, I would venture say that most cyclists tend to prefer the sprung saddles.
The Flyer has larger coils, but they are very tight and provide a feeling of shock absorption rather than full spring. So if you are considering putting a Flyer on a road bike but are worried that it may be too bouncy, it may not necessarily be the case.
Of course in the end everybody is different, but I believe this summary is applicable in the majority of cases. This saddle is customized with a sewn seat, hand tooled leather seats and fenders, and beautiful western ponchos and includes extra rings and strings.
